Our read aloud that we are enjoying this month is Andrew Clements', "Frindle". It is about a creative fifth grader named Nick who likes to make class time exciting. His English teacher, Mrs. Granger challenges him to think about who makes the words that are in the dictionary. Nick's creativity goes to work and he decides to make up his own new word, and renames the pen, "frindle." Before you know it, every fifth grader is using his new word! Mrs. Granger is NOT happy and keeps over 200 students after school for detention! And that is only the beginning... Stay tuned for future updates!
